UPDATED: DEC 30, 2010 Bottle from Festival Foods. The beer is a clear amber-gold color with a medium ivory white head that diminishes steadily. Spotty lacing. Grainy malt and fruit in the nose. Light body with a fruity character and flavors of caramel malt, crackers and mild hops. The finish is short and malty with a fruit aftertaste. Just average overall.

12oz bottle that I picked up at Historic Casanova Liquors in Hudson, WI on my way back from Minneapolis. Pours a mostly clear, amber-copper colored body with a thin, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is some caramel with a light cereal sweetness and a touch of toast. Some grain with light floral fruits and a hint of grass. Flavor is similar. A bit of a watery, grainy, somewhat toasted caramel with a light sweetness. Some floral fruits that grow slightly into the finish where a hint of grass helps dry this with a very light bitterness. Fairly lengthy, dry aftertaste following a light, smooth, clean body and soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a very easy drinking, sessionable beer. Nothing crazy with the aroma or flavors, but well put together and crisp.

Bleh. Didn’t do anything for me. Pretty ruby pour, but almost no aroma, and a slightly fizzy watery beer without much to it.

Light, citrus aroma. The flavor is a unique blend of malt and barley, but the finish is a little surprisingly bitter.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Pour was clear orange with a nice sized white head. Aroma of bread and caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Taste is caramel, yeast, and a slight hop bite. Decent beer, and highly sessionable.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Copper color with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, with a hint of bitter hops. Flavor is bready and caramel sweetness. Finishes slightly bitter. Great sessionable beer for the summer.

I had no idea what style this beer was when I tried it. I guessed blond, amber, possibly an English pale or bitter. I did not guess Irish ale. Anyhoo, Brownish orange, nice mix of caramel and a nice fruity (melon?) sweetness, with a slightly winey, crisp finish.
